    Pros

    Wear what you want clothing rule

    Cons

    CEOs pets get high mgmt jobs when they don't have qualifications or experience. Company is hard core sales environment, where if you're under performing thy will start lookin for someone ore plae you. Sneaky work practices, unethical behaviours, reward those who make money but are children within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEOS pets need to go. Customer service manager with no management experience, sales managers with no people management HR managers with no HR qualifications. Don't blame the staff all the time, it's your mgmt and the CEOS behaviour that make the culture so rough and unsustainable.

    I worked at Groupon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture - hands-down. Everything is changing and moving so quickly, and in the beginning, your input was extremely important. It was amazing to be part of something that was growing so fast and changing the way people shopped online. There are so many opportunities to move around internally and management is great to find the right position for you.

    Cons

    The changes with commission, bonuses, overtime fluctuated too much - this is where a lot of inconsistency was. One month you had overtime then the next you didn't, then you had it again.
